Randy Houser plans to be heavily involved in his son West 's life, but he won't be overly strict with the boy. Randy was given a lot of leeway growing up in Mississippi, which allowed him make his own mistakes.
Randy tells TheBoot.com , "I think the fact that I wasn't told what not to do all the time -- my spirit kind of told me things that I shouldn't -- I got to develop on my own. It's part of your common sense."
Randy wants the same for his son, who is almost a year old.
"Until he just really starts messing up, I'm going to let him have some pretty good freedom," Randy says. "But I will get on his butt if I have to. You have to be a daddy too."
Randy hopes to add a second bus to his tour soon so he can bring West and his wife Jessa on the road with him.
